PA Health Official Says Eating Disorders Remain A Serious Health Issue

Pennsylvania's top health official wants Pennsylvanians to be aware of a condition that hasn't gotten a great deal of attention lately, but remains a serious issue. We don't hear a lot these days about eating disorders- anorexia, bulimia, and the like, but PA Health Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine says it's still a serious problem. In recent years, Dr. Levine says hospitalizations for eating disorders for men, an often under-reported group, have increased 53 percent. Anyone needing information can contact the National Eating Disorder Association, at 1-800-931-2237.
